JOHN FRIOK, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
IMPROVEMENT IN CANDLESTICKS.
Specification'forming part of Letters Patent No. 213,184, dated March 11, 1879 application filed December 27, 1878.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN FRIGK, of the city, county, and Stateof New York, have invented anew and useful Improvementin Candlesticks, of which the following is a specification Figure 1 is a top view of one of my improved candlesticks. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the same, taken through the line as m, Fig. 1.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
The object of this invention is to furnish an improved candlestick which shall be simple in construction and inexpensive in manufacture, and which shall be so constructed that it can be readily taken apart and packed in a very small compass for convenience in storage and transportation.
The invention consists in a candlestick formed by the combination of the radiallyslitted and circumferentially-flan ged plate with the slitted and notched base-plates, detachable, as hereinafter fully described.
A B are two plates'of sheet metal, which are made with straight lower edges, rounded ends, One of the plates, A, is slitted from the center of its upper edge, and the other, B, is slitted from the center of its lower edge, the said slits being made of such a width and depth that the two plates A B may be interlocked at right angles with each other, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. I
In the central part of the upper edges of the plates AB are formed rectangular notches, to form a recess or socket to receive the end of a candle.
O is a circular plate of sheet metal, in which are formed four radial slits, extending inward from its outer edge, and of such a width and depth as to receive the upwardly-projecting parts of the two plates A B. The solid middle part of the plate O rests upon the edges of the plates A B at the bottom of the rectangular notches in the said plates. The edge of the plate 0 is turned up at right angles to form a flange, as shown, to retain any tallow that may drip or run down from the candle.
In the end parts of the plate A, that are slitted from its upper edge, are formed holes, to serve as handles in carrying the candlestick, and also to serve as guides in taking hold of the candlestick, as it would be liable to come apart if raised by the ends of the plate B, in case the parts should fit loosely together.
1 am aware that candlesticks have been made by attaching two slitted and notched plates at their lower edges permanently to a base-plate or cup. This construction I do not claim; but,
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- A candlestick formed by the combination of the radially-slitted and circumferentially flanged plate O with the slitted and notched plates A B, detachably connected, substantially as herein shown and described.
